Additional Information:

  • Spartans, it is time for winter sports!!  Visit our Sports Schedules page for detailed schedules and plan on attending some winter sports events.
  • In an effort to reduce the hazard of dropping off children at Salem High School the following procedures are in effect. All morning traffic will be channeled into two lanes immediately in front of the High School. The right lane (the lane closest to the school) is the drop off lane. Pull your vehicle parallel to the curb and have student(s) exit the vehicle. You are not allowed to park here, so have student(s) ready to exit. Do not block traffic by allowing student(s) to get book bags out of trunks, writing checks, switching drivers, or any last minute instructions. This lane must continue to move. After dropping off your student(s), move your vehicle into the left lane and prepare to merge into one lane. The left lane is for through traffic. This lane is not to be used for dropping off students. Caution must be used to merge into one lane in order to exit the school grounds.
